Default My Starmate 4 just shut down and......

now it will not power up again. Was driving home from work and it just shut down all by itself. The screen went off and then the rest of the unit slowly dimmed out.

I checked the power at the plug. It's putting out 5.3 volts. Nothing was warm or hot to touch. Didn't smell anything either.

Anybody else ever have this problem? Is my unit defective?

Gee.. It seems that there are an increasing number of complaints on this forum about the new Starmates and Sportsters packing it in. (I've been noticing these posts because I have a Starmate 3)

Other than sending it in for warranty work I don't know what to say.. Let us know what happens.
